01. Space Race

Yes, yes I'd launch into the rising sun
my living breath is measured
every step is done
fare you well my friends
see you down the line
yeah, yeah...
I don't belong to nation state or dying race
I leave my prejudice
with you my religion's in space
so have a little respect
why are we running in this space race
why are we acting like we own the place
just want to feel the starlight on my face
reach out my hand and touch beyound...
yes, yes I'd float around till gravity's end
unity is coming, singular again
see you then my friends at the end of the line, yeah, yeah
secret knowledge science logic all are done
nothing left but burning up into the sun
on a cosmic beach I'll see ya there


02. Back From The Edge

A silent river flowing black
strange attractions no turning back
present danger I recall
that pins my senses to the wall
back from the edge where the darkness has fled
and I'm swimming
in light and I'm falling... falling from the edge...
back from the edge
I fell from grace and that's a fact
still have urges I fight back
cold decisions wear me thin
kill yourself begin again
back from the fear
that you're not worth a damn
throw yourself
into light and the rush as you
sign from the edge...
back from the edge...
now and then I wonder where the faces
from my childhood have gone
like father like son your bones it lives on glowing shadows
back from the edge


03. Inertia

These are the pictures
these are the feelings from the frontline
living in silence
feeling the deafness like heavy smoke
smiling with strangers counting days
like a spring coiled up inside
welcome to your future
welcome to your book of life
fingers crawl through pages

nothing changes living here
Inertia
no wish to move at all
Inertia
everything's a stone wall
Inertia

history let's you die
a ragged pile of silent accusers
smell the blood of strangers here
no eyes no ears no smell no taste
the mouth of the maggot is full of this place
murdered conscience the pressure is crushing heads
like paper lanterns now
unbreakable grip a dead hand
driving us forward to the end
kicking through the traces
a thousand years from now


04. Faith

You knew I wouldn't go
that's why you threatened me... would I stay?
you crawled up on your knees
a victioms pretty please...
would I stay? would I stay?... and I stayed
how many more times, till I breakout
from that guilty mess
you taught me to hate to love you
that's because you love to hate yourself
I wish it had a happy end
like the fairy tales
pretend there can be
but things are not the same
when your life love was a game
of make believe
you get everything you want
but not everything you need
and it's true... you recieve...
what you achieve
how many screaming fights, tears of rage
until it ended
how many times, till I say who I am
and don't pretend


05. Solar Confinement

Trapped inside a web of fiery gravity that fuels all our needs
chaotic energy that sucks the life from H to He
all life withers in the sun
I deny what I have done
spend my days and nights
in roaring halls of crimson life
solar confinement
solar confinement, solar confinement
solar distress flares
I've slept with many strangers
so fission fusion fission makes good sense
where I laid my head my troubles
I put down to experience
it's cold and lonely in the sun
deny what I have done
spend my days and nights
in roaring halls of crimson life
a lonely boy sits in his room
his curtains hide the sun
confess to what you've done
and no one understands


06. Dreamstate

Well you bred me
well you fed me
well you made me what I am
good for nothing
well...
it's a dreamstate, a dreamstate
to kill me with kindness you'll just have to wait
you say I'm nothing
you say I'm nothing
never gonna be something well then
that's the life for me
your expectations... your reservation
aw... c'mon please...
it's a dreamstate, a dreamstate
you bought into the vision so you don't have to wait
a dreamstate of bliss, a dreamstate of bliss
a dreamstate...
now I'm standing up here before the judge
juries got their head where the sun don't shine
everybody's lying on my case, they're lying on me
lying on me...
lying on me...
lying on my case
eyes above me, eyes above me
never realised there was someone
else in here
no resolution
and no conclusion
do I believe?
in a dreamstate, a dreamstate...
you fell for it sucker, you fell for the bait
a dreamstate of bliss
a dreamstate of bliss
a dreamstate


07. I Will Not Accept The Truth

I will not accept the truth
I will not accept the truth
I will not accept the truth
that I'll never get there no way

I must not push forward... no
I must not push forward... no
I must not push forward... no
because I'll never get there
never get there... no way

I will not believe your lies
I will not believe your lies
I will not believe your lies
you say I'll never get there
never get there, well hold on..

I will not accept your truth
I will not believe your lies
I will not acknowledge pain
I will survive and live again
coming back now, rising back now


08. Inside The Machine

I've got myself a widget
a gizmo with wires
and martian intent yeah
strange face of beauty
on my machine
it blinks and stares right at me
sees nothing but in its wires
a strange thing of beauty
that's my machine
you won't believe what it can do
it tells me things I never
wished I knew
like the mirror when you ask
it tells you true
inside the machine
the web has got you now
inside the machine
I'm part of it somehow
I'd strap my DNA to it
a living device, the light of my life, yeah
strange thing of beauty
that's my machine
I sit and we crackle with static
it makes no sense ot have experience
when a strange of beauty
that's my machine
inside the machine, we're looking for control
inside the machine, we're part of it somehow


09. Headswitch

What would induce you to swear your allegiance to God, tonight
joined at the hip to a million volt switch of the light, alright
you want to find out what the planet's about
falling from grace leaves a cool empty space in the sky
your eyes are black as they see
the red ball of the sun, out they're blind
dribbling with come as the volts start to arc through your mind
it's cruel but it's kind
like father like son chop of the head and the body lives on
falling from grace leaves a cool empty space in the sky
like father like son
chop of the head and the body lives on
heaven that made you has screwed you and left
falling from grace leaves a cool empty space in the sky


10. Meltdown

Hey you wait... cringing in the dark
you create what you always fear
a puppet of hatred dishing out poison
you use me, for bait, your begging bowl of lies
chain letters of snivelling compromise
I can smell the difference... your truth and your fiction
you and your twisted convictions

were you my friend when I belonged?
were you my friend when I was strong?
were you my friend when I was weak?
were you my friend when I was crawling calling... out of my head?

cold, like your blood the snake is always cool (cool)
when things get tough
you slither on the ground
you cover up your tracks when I'm around
it's over now my friend
your dog has got its day
it's payback time, or what you had to say
you're stuck with the life you made
stuck with the plans you made
stuck with everything you are


11. Octavia

I'm vacuum breathing and open-mouthed
as the red shift fills my eyes
oh minister my promises as her shadow cuts the day away
I remember you when you walked into that room
now dislocated jagged pieces
are sliding into this broken mind
I'm swimming back against the river
but I'm rising with the tide
where we came from
we're all going back there soon
how many times have we met this way
how many lives have we lived before
how many faces and how many names
shadows come but shadows are gone
shadows come but shadows are gone


12. Innerspace

I see the scars of action writhing round your face
too much inactivity and home's a lonely place
throw away your beauty cos you know that it won't last
throw away your present
you've need living in the past
so stake a trip with me
across the bridge of lunacy
fire up some beast and ride the skywaves
don't wanna waste my time on you
if you can't travel this way too
fire up this beast we'll ride the skywave
I've thrown away my images
they're all so distant now
discovery was a stranger then
so welcome to my house
whatever demons torture me
I love them like a friend
nothing lasts forever but the certainty of change
I'd rather move around and be that figure out life
and what it means
fire up some beast and ride the skywaves
and when the fireballs work is done and we are part of the nuclear one
the whole Damn Thing begins again
our glory days have just begun
a fiery sideslip then we're gone
I'll see ya Monday morning
anyway I'm coming back


13. Strange Death In Paradise

Spiralling falling, a silver machine
from wings of freedom silent above
eyelids were burning, summer sun roasting
fumbling chrome in the clear blue sky
brighter than sunshine for all of our life times
1000 stars turned day into night at the end
where were you when it fell from the sky?
I saw the movie, I read the reply
in the beginning there was only the word
people were kissing in front of their shadows
children were playing out in the yard
I am not guilty made no difference
I wasn't born and I wasn't made on that day
where were you when it fell from the sky?
I saw the movie, I read the reply
in the beginning there was only the word
strange death in paradise
